technical data sheetarrow13LAB-AIR* System; Electronic Air Purifiers

A system which complies with OSHA Regulations and minimizes Occupational Exposure To Toxic Vapors.

The System that destroys the odors and fumes and doesn't just mask them.
Toxic vapors are reduced as well!!

Lab-Air Units are designed to eliminate harmful fumes and annoying odors from the laboratory workplace.

How do they work ?

Electronic Air Purifiers produce a controlled level of Ozone electrically by converting molecules of Oxygen (O2 ) into molecules of Ozone (O3). Ozone, sometimes called activated oxygen, as part of the process of returning to oxygen, casts off its extra atom. That extra atom combines with the molecule of the odor's source and thereby destroys the odor by oxidation. Once Ozone's extra atom is consumed fresh air is left behind which was created by a natural process.

Lab-Air Units produce a safe unsaturated level of activated oxygen that neutralizes harmful fumes and eliminates problem odors from organic materials as well as some commonly used chemicals such as: Formaldehyde, Xylene, Toluene, Glutaraldehyde, Alcohol, Acetone.

For instance:

HCHO + O3
Formaldehyde + Ozone

=
HCOOH + O2
Formic Acid + Oxygen
HCOOH + O3
Formic Acid + Ozone

=
CO2 + H2O + O2
Carbon Dioxide* + Water* + Oxygen*

What is the best location for our LAB-AIR* System ?

Histology/Pathology/EM Labs – There are common odors and toxic vapors which are generated by fixing fluids, staining and embedding materials, autopsy samples, body odors, remains of dead animals and fumes which can exceed the capacity of the fume hood. In these cases these fumes may spread to other areas of the building.

Other Labs with Odors – There are other locations within the hospital or research lab where people are using chemicals such as xylene, glutaraldehyde, formaldehyde, etc. where the LAB-AIR* SYSTEM would be very beneficial.

Animal Necropsy – These are odors and fumes associated with the remains of dead animals. These odors can spread, especially in the warmer months, throughout an entire building. The LAB-AIR SYSTEM eliminates this totally.

AREA x ODOR FACTOR = MG/HR required

Cubic Feet
Measure the Cubic Footage (L x W x H) of the AREA being treated.
Estimate the ODOR FACTOR as follows:
    Light Odor Factor = 0.005
    Medium Odor Factor = 0.018
    Strong Odor Factor = 0.036
Cubic Meters
Measure the Cubic Footage (L x W x H) of the AREA being treated.
Estimate the ODOR FACTOR as follows:
    Light Odor Factor = 0.18
    Medium Odor Factor = 0.65
    Strong Odor Factor = 1.29
Multiply the AREA by the ODOR FACTOR to determine the MG/HR on the chart below. Set OZONE on the machine to the setting nearest the required MG/HR and adjust as required.
